Bittman, Anomaly Part Ways

We’ve received confirmation that Benjamin Bittman, who’s spent approximately three years serving as digital development director at Anomaly, has left the agency. From what we’ve been told, Bittman is taking some time off and heading to Italy. According to those in the know, the parting of ways is an amicable one as we’ve been told that Bittman “did an outstanding job” and “as he was a unique talent and the digital space is constantly changing,” Anomaly is reviewing its next steps in terms of replacement plans. During his career, the 15-year ad vet had a lengthy stint on the marketing side at TBWA\Worldwide and had a relatively brief stint as EVP/chief marketing officer at Saatchi & Saatchi New York.

Bittman’s departure, while unrelated, follows those of Ian Daly and Chris Rorie, who served as head of planning and head of data and strategic analysis, respectively, at Anomaly New York.

Daly, Rorie Out at Anomaly

As mentioned above, we’ve received confirmation that both Ian Daly and Chris Rorie have left Anomaly NY. Daly (pictured) if you recall was promoted to joint head of planning over six months ago alongside Aisea Laungaue (who also departed earlier this year). The exec had been with Anomaly for nearly two years, initially serving as planning director on accounts including Budweiser and Converse while at the agency. During his career, Daly also served as a senior planner at Grey on award-winning campaigns for DirecTV among other pieces of business.

Rorie, meanwhile, had been with Anomaly for nearly two years, serving as head of data & strategic analysis and prior to his work at said agency, held similar roles at the likes of PHD, Digitas and MRM. No word yet if there are immediate plans to replace either party, but from what we hear on the Spy line, both are heading to TBWA\Media Arts Lab.
